    My 90mm Angulon arrived

    It won't fire via cable release because the cable release cannot be depressed! But if I set it on...

    Actually having an adhesive Velcro coin on one's noggin can be used to hold a dark cloth in place for focusing when it's windy.

    Re: Preferred Format, and why?

    8x10 is my preferred format. I like everything from composing and focusing the aerial image on the expanse of ground glass to contact printing those big negatives.

    Re: Looking at two lense for 4x5 to 8x10

    I started shooting 8x10 with a 14" Commercial Ektar in a No.5 Universal.
    An excellent choice IMHO!
    I added some Lee poly filters with that rubber band holder thing.

    Re: Wide angle lenses for 8x10

    FWIW I found a 240 G Claron to be a great little lens for hiking with an 8x10.
    Drew Wiley probably has a 240 Fuji that is even smaller and lighter :)

    How long are the bellows on your 4x5?

    A 210 G Claron will do nicely on a 4x5 and cover 8x10 when stopped down
    A 190mm Kodak Wide Field Ektar will also cover 4x5 and 8x10.

    I've a 159mm Wolly Velostigmat EWA yellow dot.
    I checked out a 165mm Super Angulon once but thought it way too heavy for the front standards on my ol' 'dorff.
  26. Re: 8x10 Development in tray - How to know the time

    Most B&W films take about 7 minutes in the developer.
    A 12 oz bottle of really good beer takes about 7 minutes to savor.
    Coincidence?
    I think not.

    But K-Y is water soluble, so it's easier to clean it off your lens. It's also a decent shutter lubricate in freezing temperatures.

    In my own experience, format (8x10) dictated lens availability!
    Fortunately there are plenty of old lenses which cover 8x10.
